When can I view the hall?

Can I book your hall by phone for a party?
NO! Please phone the Bookings Secretary and she will tell you when she is next at the hall. We do not take confirmed bookings for private party hires by phone, email or text as we will require you to complete a booking form and pay your deposit for the date you require.

Can I have a bouncy castle at the hall for a child's birthday party?
Yes. Bouncy castles are allowed in both the hall and our garden. You must ensure that the company you are hiring from has full Public Liability Insurance as the hall's insurance policy will not cover you. Private play equipment from your home or garden is not allowed. Please ensure you advise the Bookings Secretary when you make the booking that a bouncy castle hire company will be coming to site. There is a 12 foot maximum height restriction in the hall.
Please note that our garden is not enclosed. All small children should be supervised at all times as we are next to a road and car park
